AMD Phenom II X4 910


$250.00 Released June, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:95w TPD - lower (cooler, less power hungry) than the faster model's 125W. Affordable compared to Intel options. Part of the latest AM3 platform, support for DDR3 memory.

The Cons:Difficult to find - might only be available to system manufacturers. 95W TDP is still slightly hot, power hungry. Not required for the majority of consumers.

The Phenom II X4 910 is a high-end quad-core desktop processor, one of several new 45nm Deneb-based models introduced by AMD in 2009. The processor clocks in at 2.6 GHz, and features a 1MB L2 and 6MB L3 cache, unlike the 805 and 810 models, which have L3 caches of only 4 MB.

  Cool'n'Quiet technology decreases noise and heat output from the 95W CPU, while HyperTransport 3.0 technology scales performance to reduce power consumption. It also features Enhanced Virus Protection, for protection against some viruses. It differs only slightly from the Phenom II X4 925, which features a 2.8GHz frequency.

Sam : #amd_phenom_ii_x4_910 I got this AMD Phenom X4 910 processor with a HP Pavilion Elite Model e9220y from Best Buy I regret . I decided to try and upgrade it even though it doesn't have a Sli slot on the mother board. I replaced the Ati 512 ram video card with a PNY Nvidia GTX 460 and upgraded the power supply from 350w to 500w but it seems like im not getting all i can out of my GPU. My question is can this processor support this video card ? thanx in advance for any input Jan 8, 11

    Yale: unfortunately there aren't any benchmarks on that CPU that I can find, but it seems like it should be fast enough not to bottleneck a single GTX460 (within the latest architecture family, 2.6GHz, quad core) - at least in my estimation. As you may know the majority of games these days are GPU intensive rather than CPU. But I guess this all depends on what exactly you're playing - there are the exceptions to the rule.

    Are you sure your 6-pin pci-e power connection to the card is connected properly? Try taking it out and pushing another in securely. Jan 8, 11
